Construction Law | L4228
This course will focus on the process of planning, procuring, engineering and constructing physical structures, such as buildings, bridges, industrial facilities, reservoirs, and the like. Topics will include describing project participants (Owner, engineer, contractor, regulator, financier) and how they define and plan a project. Contracting for financing, engineering, construction, equipment and materials will be discussed, as well as risk allocation and dispute resolution. A recent significant structure failure will be used as an example. All of the faculty are current practitioners, and will discuss how law actually works in projects, as opposed to how law may be written. Skills in negotiation and dispute resolution will be emphasized.
